Venezuela's latest shortage: gasoline

Battered by an economic crisis, Venezuelans are used to waiting in long lines for scarce goods, but many found themselves queuing Thursday for something the ailing oil giant was supposed to have in spades: gasoline. Drivers had to wait more than an hour to fill up at many gas stations in Caracas and several other cities after supplies were mysteriously disrupted. "There's no reason an oil-producing country should have a gasoline shortage," said irate retiree Jesus Ascanio at a gas station on the capital's east side.

Military action against North Korea an 'option': Tillerson

Military action by the United States against nuclear-armed North Korea is an "option on the table" if the threat from the rogue regime escalates, Washington's top diplomat Rex Tillerson said Friday. Tillerson's tour comes after a missile launch last week that Pyongyang described as a drill for an attack on US bases in Japan. The US has 28,000 troops stationed in South Korea to defend it from the North, but the capital Seoul is within range of Pyongyang's artillery and analysts believe any conflict could risk rapid escalation and heavy casualties.

By Greg Torode HONG KONG (Reuters) - China has started fresh construction work in the disputed South China Sea, new satellite images show, a sign that Beijing is continuing to strengthen its military reach across the vital trade waterway.
